Ind. Police Investigate Arrow Shot at Passing Car

FISHERS, Ind. --

Police are trying to determine who shot an arrow at a passing vehicle at the intersection of 96th Street and Allisonville Road early Friday morning.

Fishers police Sgt. Randy McFarland said officers were called to the Circle K gas station, where Rhonda Green, 56, stopped at about 3:50 a.m. after her car had been hit.

Green initially thought someone had shot at her car, but officers found an arrow had been used.

"As Mrs. Green traveled east through the intersection, she said she saw a vehicle stopped in the middle of the westbound lanes," McFarland said. "As she approached and passed the vehicle, she saw a male standing outside … with his arms in a position that looked like he was pointing a weapon at her."

Green told police she heard a "loud whack" and knew she had been shot at.

"There was this man stopped in the middle of the intersection, and he's got this … something shot at me. It was a real loud noise," Green told a dispatcher. "He had his arms up in the air like he was pointing something. I was wondering what he was doing. All of a sudden, something real loud went 'pow.'"

A Circle K attendant told police that two white men who appeared drunk had just been at the gas station. He said one of the men was holding an arrow.

"The investigation further revealed that one of the suspects had shot an arrow from a bow into one of the outside freezers, which left a hole in one of the doors," McFarland said.

The arrow used to hit Green's car was found along the roadside, police said. Green was not hurt.

Green told 6News' Jack Rinehart she is still shaken by the incident.

"He could have killed someone, and it could have been me," she said. "It was stupid. They put a whole lot of people in danger."

Police said the men may have been in a dark SUV. They asked anyone with information to call 317-773-1282.
